Reliable Spill Containment Solutions

Spill containment for frac tanks, decon wash pads, tanker trucks, drum storage, mining operations, heavy machinery, and other large equipment.

If you work in an industry that deals with oil, chemicals or other hazardous materials, you’ll likely need proper spill containment solutions. Spills–of any kind–can disrupt your business, cause lengthy delays, and result in hefty fines by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). It’s important to have the proper spill control supplies on-hand to prevent situations from becoming a larger problem.

What is Spill Containment?

Spill containment is the process of preventing chemicals, oils, sewage, or other harmful liquids from reaching the soil or groundwater. Proper spill containment involves the use of secondary spill containment systems such as spill pads, spill berms, and other leak containment products.

Who is Required to Have a Secondary Containment System?

Secondary spill containment systems are required by the EPA and regulated by the spill prevention control and countermeasures rules. According to the EPA, facilities that are subjected to spill containment regulations are:

  • Storing, transferring, using or consuming oil products, such as diesel fuel, gasoline, lube oil, hydraulic oil, adjuvant oil, crop oil, vegetable oil or animal fat.
  • Storing more than 1,320 gallons of product in above-ground containers or more than 42,000 gallons in completely buried containers.
  • Reasonably expected to discharge oil to navigable waters of the U.S. or adjoining shorelines, such as lakes, rivers and streams.
